I've been working on a secret project! A quilt for my little Pumpkin who has transitioned from a twin size bed to a full size bed. A perfect excuse to make more quilts. lol
I started this project back in July 2016, had all the flying geese sewn. There it sat patiently, waiting for me to pick it back up. Of course I started other projects in between, because ... that's what most quilters do! It wasn't until early December that I figured I'd better get quilting if I want it under the tree as a surprise for Pumpkin.
I wanted her to have what I call a "winter" quilt; a quilt made using 100% wool batting. Although it doesn't have the weight, it does have loads of warmth!
I chose the pattern The Christmas Village by Sweetwater. The main fabric is 25th & Pine by Basic Gray, an older line that I was reluctant to cut into. You know how that is? But I'm sure glad I did!
I added an extra row and column to increase the size. I do love how it turned out.
The machine quilting!
I love everything about this quilt. I may just take it back! lol
Thanks for stopping by my little corner in cyber space! Catch you later!
